($80) Good ruby-red color. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, violet, tobacco, cedar and chocolatey oak. Sweet, supple and silky, with a burnished oak element and broad, fine tannins. Distinctly creamy in the middle, even on the soft side. Not quite as gripping as it appeared to be from barrel a year ago, but aromatic and suave. The cabernet franc was less potent in 2001 than in 2002, notes Viader, who told me that her wine is always under 14%.

Blackish crimson ? a very deep colour. Tarry nose. Complete and rich. Sweet, round and full. Quite a blockbuster though with a neat dry finish. Exceptionally persistent. Quite alcoholic but still well balanced. Round and powerful though more jagged than the 2002.

Drink Dates 2011-2021

Displaying loads of complexity, this blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc has a nose of bay leaf, black currants, cedar in a very perfumed, medium-bodied, quintessentially elegant style. It is not a far-fetched comparison to call this Napa Valley Cheval Blanc, although that wine is a nearly equal part blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon rather than Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Dark plum/purple, pure, and close to full maturity, this wine should continue to age nicely for at least another decade or more.

Color: Black, dark purple...almost inky. Nose: A black currant bonanza! Spicy cedar and some funk hung out around the massive black currant perfume. Palate: Surprise, lots of black currants, some black cherry, sweet tobacco, very full bodied. Everything is in balance for such a large wine. Still youthful. The finish was long and slightly one dimensional...it almost belly flopped on the palate as opposed to fanning out.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
